The View from Above

If you didn't make it to North Africa or Central Asia for a glimpse of last month's total solar eclipse you missed a great show (or so I hear). But the best view of all came from space. The photograph above was taken by the crew of the International Space Station, while orbiting 230 miles above the Earth, as the moon's shadow passed across the Mediterranean.
